Ron Paul asking UN to seize ronpaul.com
« on: February 11, 2013, 10:38:15 AM »
Is he serious?  The owner of ronpaul.com is selling the domain for $250k, but Ron thinks it's to high, and feels he is entitled to the domain, so he filed a 13 page complaint to the UN.  The owners offered him ronpaul.org for free, but we wants it all.

His fans are pissed!

Its strange how mankind always seem to need leaders, and organize around a single individual. This could be a lesson for libertarians.

Simply strange. If Paul didn't buy it, who else would pay that much for a website for one guy?
It's not as if it appeals to the porn industry, car companies, even Pubs have no use for it.
He should have kept his mouth shut and wait for the price to plummet, and it's obvious no one wants it.

What's even stranger is he could put a message out asking for folks to contribute so he can buy it and would raise that in no time.  I'd try to haggle it down to as low as I can, and then ask for help from my sheeple.

Good point...
I wonder if the damage is irreparable though, he's not coming off as the good guy, the guy they placed on a pedestal.

It is.  We'll see if he has the courage to address this.

They gave the guy Saint hood, now their feelings are hurt. In a way I understand, but he didn't ask for worshipers, he wanted constituents.
It's like kicking groupies out of your bathroom, they just don't get it. :lol:

    Back in 2007 we put our lives on hold for you, Ron, and we invested close to 10,000 hours of tears, sweat and hard work into this site at great personal sacrifice.
Wahhhh!!!!

We helped raise millions of dollars for you, we spread your message of liberty as far and wide as we possibly could,
Hello!!!! That's why it's called a campaign...
 
Quote
and we went out of our way to defend you against the unjustified attacks by your opponents.
Wrong!!! You were the ones he needed defending against, you freakin nuts!

Now that your campaigns are over and you no longer need us, you want to take it all away – and send us off to a UN tribunal?
And to think, a simple restraining order would have sufficed nicely...
You and RP all deserve each other.

If this was Palin, Bachmann, or any conservative, Shooter would have swooped in several times by now......

As our beloved Miss Jasmine use to say, Taxed. "Bite me!"

Why ever should anyone have to pay for their name?

Because he doesn't own it?
